What's ironic is that we can actually sell out against the pass, since the Bolts have actually become a passing team now.

The only thing I fear is getting stuffed on the goal line on 4th down and again on 4th at midfield because Carey Davis cannot block Steven Cooper. Please show me more McHugh lead blocking for Gary Russell in short yardage. Davis is terrible!!!

Yes, but they actually execute the screen pass quite well, unlike the Steelers. So we cant entirely sell out vs the pass.

Is amazing that all the elements that slow down a pass rush, like screen passes, throw quick slants or just straight up block ...............we just don't do well.

I'm guessing the Steelers coaches have watched just a little film on the Chargers. I don't expect the Bolts to do anything we aren't prepared for.

Heres what scares me. Bolts 0-13 all time during the regular season against Pitt, but 2-0 all time in the playoffs against Pitt. They are a different team.

What I fear the most is the Steeler's shooting themselves in the foot. They are going to have to play a complete game similiar to the one they played against New England, IMO.

It's going to come down to execution on both sides of the ball as well as special teams/field position.

I don't think the Chargers can beat us, but we can beat ourselves.

No one shoots themselves in the foot more then Willie Colon and Big Ben. Those two schmucks need to not make mistakes at the worst time in the game.

That inferior Chargers team in 94 beating us in 3 Rivers will ALWAYS haunt me. Then they got thumped by the 49ers...I've always wondered how much better we would have fared in that Super Bowl.

And the Chargers coaches have watched tons of film on the Steelers too. There is always a weakness somewhere and the coaches can always add a wrinkle or 20 to disguise pre snap reads. I dont think it will be a matter of not being prepared, but more a case of making the opponent think you are doing one thing, but doing another.

Its really a game of human chess to line up the players in the best possible position to make plays before the ball is snapped. Its possible to be prepared for everything, but not see the move until its checkmate.

Thanks for that thoughtful insight.
